The Brick Mill Cemetery (BMC) is the largest all African American Cemetery within Onslow County, North Carolina.

Family oral history states this community cemetery, now on private property, was established ca.1900.

Section "G" of the BMC will be Resurrection Mission's 2010 preservation project, for this cemetery.

Since January 2007, Jack Robinson has been locating, clearing, researching official records and then maintaining the BMC. Mostly done at his sole financial support, he has enlarged the cemetery an estimated 30%, by locating and then confirming unmarked graves.

Section "G," as confirmed by Elders of the community and other historians, contain, not less then 100 marked and unmarked graves.

Nearly all graves in this section are covered with over 60 years of foliage growth. Until Jack's work, even the owner of the property, now over 70 years of age, did not know this large quantity of graves were within section "G."

Thank you for taking time to review the vidio and this material.
